Peephole aka Ana Satsujin. The name and first chapter let you believe this is some dirty ecchi / semi-hentai manga. I found the masturbation scene at the start not fitting with the rest of the story. It is however still quite dirty, but more because of the many many ...many...murders which take place in this story. So far I've read all released chapters and I must say this is quite an intriguing twisted romance story. The synopsis doesn't say much about the story so let me give you a little summary of this manga, without revealing too much spoilers beyond the first chapter. The very first page starts with Kurosu peeping on Miyaichi after a failed suicide created a hole in the wall. As Kurosu kept observing Miyaichi he fell in love with her and found a reason to keep on living. But what he did not expect was Miyaichi being a serial killer. After seeing her murder someone he gets discovered but surprisingly Miyaichi lets him live, at least for now! What follows next is Kurosu getting more and more involved with her murder spree and the problems associated with that while the love between the two keeps on growing. Will Miyaichi stop killing? Will they live happily ever after? Will there be problems with the cops, gangs and rivaling serial killers? Or will Miyaichi kill Kurosu after all? The art is okay in this story, the severed heads are however heavily censored, and I do not know if that is done by the scanlators or by the author, I suspect the latter. But me being a lover of gore find that a little bit disappointing. Other than that there are no complaints on the artwork. Characters: Kurosu is the main character of the story however Miyaichi steals the show, mainly because Kurosu is faint hearted and easily faints so Miyaichi has to save him. His life lies in the hands of Miyaichi who might kill him any second if she wishes. Miyaichi is my favorite as the cold heartless but extremely smart serial killer. Her elaborate plans let her escape the grasps of her hunters every time. I expected her background story to explain why she was killing, but it didn't she is just a natural born killer. Despite that I keep on rooting for her. Even if she gets her way with Kurosu...which by the way would be a very unique and interesting ending of the story. Overall this a very interesting and unique story so I suggest you keep on reading for at least the first couple of chapters and not drop the manga on the first misleading pages. I'm curious how this manga will end and if it will receive a bad ending, happy ending or happy happy ending. Update after the manga finished:I've got the ending which I hoped for but unfortunally it left a bad taste behind. But for spoiler reasons I can't tell more as that. Overall it was a pretty good manga but unfortunally it started to drag a little the later stages, if it ended sooner it would have probally remained at the 7,5 rating. But it started to drag with the Abiko Subaru part which was rather boring and the characters became flat, so I lowered my score to a 7 out of 10. It is still a rather refreshing and unique manga. And reading all chapters in 1 go instead of waiting 2 weeks per chapter will make, maybe, the last part more interesting. So still a manga I can recommend to read.

Does Peephole look like Nozoki Ana judging from first chapter? Yes. Is it really like Nozoki Ana? Absolutely not. If you're looking for a nice thriller with a mass murderer as protagonist, I think you've found it. Plus/minus considerations: STORY: story starts really well, almost felt nostalgic being a Nozoki Ana fan myself, but the sexy panels were just misleading; you can divide the story in two big "chapters", as the mangaka calls them: the first part gives you a nice all-around presentation of the two main characters; the second "chapter" loses a lot, being really slow and far from what you were used to. This being said, I liked the last two chapters quite a lot, I'm satisfied. (++) ART: the art style is not the greatest thing I've ever seen; some of the panels are poorly drawn and they seem to lack technique and precision (I think it's the first serialization for this mangaka), but that's being picky. You can say that despite all the imperfections, you can clearly understand what's happening all the time. (+) CHARACTERS: no complaints for the main characters, the main couple is well described and you somewhat feel their sadness and pain (to an extent, I ain't no killer); do we want to talk about Rio for a second? She's nuts! What I feel it's disappointing is the rest of the crew: secondary characters (lady cop is one example) and minor characters are almost irrelevant to the story, they almost do nothing and I don't care at all what happens to them, no bueno. (-) I also want to add that all the chapters are really really short, some of them don't go past the 7 pages, don't let the chapters count scare you, especially if you're not into manga that much. Overall it was a good time for me and I enjoyed it, 6/10
